- My Son managed a boat dealership in TN. The following was one of the deals
Sells boat to buyer out west, like CA or AZ. Funds and title work are properly exchanged. Buyer is responsible for transportation per purchase agreement. Buyer gets a cheap bid for shipping off some website to ship from TN to CA. Shipper shows up with Jeep Cherokee and hitches up to 24 footer that weighs 5000lbs. Now this was back in 07/08 so the Jeep was older. Son voices concern about towing such weight over long haul. WAIT FOR IT. Shipper says "Not worried, its not my Jeep, and getting paid to deliver to someone else"
My advice use a good reliable company and understand what you are buying.
